Going to Homebase.

Watching the final of Succession.

A neighbour lending me some paint. After they took my old desk to the recycling centre for me.

Having work to do.

Selling tickets immediately for the Period Party.

The street garden my neighbours put in today.

Being recognised at the fabric shop.

The free sunflower from a lovely neighbour.

I made chive pancakes. Well, my version of.

P.s. and smiling at the guy who plays the instrument under the bridge. And he grinned back.

Yesterday I gave the kids across the street a bag of my old scraps of material. Today they sent me photos of the things they’ve made, including an old dress remade into a new dress for one of the little ones.

Working with Gerry. He’s funny. And sweet too.

Finishing two more pairs of dungaeees after work.

This business. Who are “sorry”.

Smiling and waving at the woman across the street from me as we waited for the binmen to get outside so we could clap them.

Chats with colleagues throughout the day – in the office, on the streets. It felt like normal. Sort of.

Playing Pictionary with Alec in House Party. This is ham.

A walk along parkland walk. The solid dry mud under my feet.

A squirrel hopping along in the middle of the road.

Giving a neighbour a sewing machine needle, all thanks to our road WhatsApp group.


Bit of Friday night gardening.

Messing around on Snapchat.

Going to the multi faith event at the Finsbury Park mosque in the evening. Speeches followed by everyone breaking fast together at a huge long tablecloth on the road. Delicious curry, loads of fruit and so many dates. Plus a funny woman to chat to and keep me company.


The loud and lively wedding by the river. The big brass band following the bride and her besties around for an hour, dancing and dancing. It was so much fun.

Feeling more confident. Being less shy about talking in French. Not calling myself an idiot. 

Alice’s texts about her long awaited Neighbours prediction coming true. Dee isn’t dead!

A swimming pool full of stuff. I can’t believe how much stuff there was.
Such a positive morning on the estate. Perceptions challenged, neighbours met and positive vibes all round.
Laughs in Finsbury.
